Late Sorbet Update

Oh my gosh, what happened. My last post was way too long ago. Meanwhile I have been to a wedding of a friend and also my birthday was recently. I´ve made it to my silver Jubilee.
Apart from the fact that I already have lost some very special people to me, I´m happy to be in good health with the rest of my family and friends and that´s quite the occasion to celebrate!

It goes without saying that with celebrating come appropriate clothes. I made a skirt specially for the wedding occasion and since the theme was pink, I made this Sorbet skirt. It reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I made this sorbet colored skirt from some tablecloths with the same pattern in slightly, different tones that someone gave me. I didn’t know what it would look like until my work was done. I´m not someone that makes clothes by patterns and rules. Once I have something in my head, the rest is a big creative process. Making this skirt was from beginning to the end a creative journey without exactly knowing what I was doing. I constantly fixed the image of the Chanel winter couture shows in my mind. In the end it became this maxi skirt. For the wedding I combined it with white pointy heels, while on my birthday I was wearing the skirt with the black ones you see in the pictures.

I love the result of the skirt. I can already imagine this skirt for Christmas. I will probably wear it with something like a white, soft grey or crème vintage beaded shirt with touches of gold in it. If there is a case of ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ syndrome coming up, I don’t have to worry at all.
